This team has stunk up the joint on both sides of the ball, and I put most of that on the coaches. Rob has had some truly despicable game plans, but these players have not executed down the stretch. Needed one stop last week and they couldnt get it
IIRC the defense was healthy for the Seahawks game and the game plan was awfull. That game showed me that Ryan came up short in in his coaching. The Seahawks are just an example of the problems the defense has, even when healthy.
